Hello everyone,
I'm Brandon Bewley from Greenwood, Indiana, just south of Indianapolis. I just starting to get into overland, to get out of the house to see the beautiful scenery that is al around us, and meet new people. I drive a 2019 Ford Ranger.
Hello Brandon, welcome to the OB familyand thank you for your service.

Welcome to the Team, I have had my eyes set on a 1997 F350 with the 7.3 Regular Cab with a 8ft Bed. Up to now I haven't even considered the the frame and stress points. Now I would only build it out as a tow rig. Can't wait to see when you post the pics of the F550.

Hi y'all. I'm Liz "Wrighno." I live in the high desert of SoCal. I drive a (currently) stock 2018 Jeep Wrangler JLU Sport. I grew up camping, backpacking, and bumming around Europe in an old VW bus. I'm semi-retired and looking to learn and get out there!

Welcome to Overland Bound
I had made the attempt to reply to a post on a member with a F350 and a 2006 F550; but thank you for pointing out my error. The fact that you took the time to tell me about Kent is much appreciated, I can't imagine that someone has better things to do.

Newly back into off-roading. Recently picked up a 2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road 4x4. Have done 4Peaks twice and Crown King, the easy way. Have a lift and tires in the garage, just waiting for a free, cooler, weekend to do the lift. Lol
Welcome James, cooler weather is on its way!

Hey y'all, I'm out in Western Massachusetts with a 2013 Sahara JKU. I'm a relative novice but have completed two Jeep Trails of Honor - and too many bumpy Colorado trails for my liking. I'm not a rock crawler, haha. Currently looking to learn/find dispersed camping and adventures here at home, bonus if they're near good fly fishing spots. Neither our senior or 2-year-old dog like bouncing around, though, so definitely looking for camping along logging/forest roads - not trying to recreate the Jeep trails.

JeepJeep is on stock-sized all-terrain tires, has 90% undercarriage armor, rock sliders + Rubicon rails, winch, skid plate, exoskeleton rack and awning. Also have a very comprehensive camping setup but you know. There's always something to improve or tweak.

Just got back from my 2nd trip to Montana, and Wyoming earlier this month found some decent easy trails out there and had alot of fun. I'm kind of a huge nerd that likes to go outdoors and drive around lol.View attachment 212830
